Make sure your golf ball's green
before you swing and call out "Fore!"
The Ecobioball is great
for use at sea or by the shore.
On the Green
Just because you spend your vacation at sea, it doesn't mean you can't practice some of your favorite onshore activities. Cruise-loving golfers can now rejoice in an environmentally-friendly treat - for themselves and for our oceans' fish!
- Ecobioball is a revolutionary new sports product - an eco-friendly, biodegradable golf ball. Created for one-time use, golfers can tee off from a boat in the middle of the ocean or on the sand by the shore without worrying about polluting the water.
- The outer core of the Ecobioball has been tested for toxicity in fish and has proven to be non-toxic. It biodegrades within 2 days of hitting the water and releases fish food to help support marine life. When normal golf balls can take anywhere from 100 to 1,000 years to decompose, 2 days is quite a relief for the Earth!
- In addition, eco-friendly golf tees are now being manufactured. More durable than standard golf tees, Eco Endurance tees don't splinter, and they biodegrade within 12 months when placed in active compost. Eco Tee2Green tees biodegrade within 60 days when composted.
Have no fish to feed? If you haven't got your sea legs but still want to practice teeing off, consider purchasing used or recycled golf balls.
